Classical and Archaeological Studies and English and American Literature allows you the freedom to explore your passion for the classical world while developing skills associated with the study of literature. The great strength of Classical and Archaeological Studies is the varied range of subjects it includes – literature, mythology, drama, archaeology, art and architecture, history, languages and philosophy – and the way they all connect in the study of ancient civilisations, including those of Egypt, Greece, Rome and their neighbours. At Kent, you can take elements from all these areas inside one programme if you want to, or you can follow a more specialised pathway, in literature, ancient history or archaeology. English at Kent is challenging, flexible, and wide-ranging. It covers both traditional areas (such as Shakespeare or Dickens) and newer fields such as American literature, creative writing, postcolonial literature and recent developments in literary theory.
